Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This collection of Hirschfeld's fluid, stylized caricatures focuses on the sights, sounds, and celebrities of New York City. Some of Hirschfeld's Broadway show posters are included, along with album covers and scores of illustrations from The New Yorker and other publications.
Publishers Weekly
In November, Abrams presents two tributes to esteemed cartoon artist Al Hirschfeld. Hirschfeld's New York by Clare Bell accompanies an exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York and showcases more than 100 drawings spanning his career so far, from the 1920s through the '90s. No one and no place is safe from his gaze: Greenwich Village denizens in 1941 imitating "movie folks in dress and manner"; wartime Broadway on a Saturday night; Upper West Side intelligentsia (including Irving Howe and Jason Epstein) thronging Zabar's in the '70s. ($15.95 paper 96p ISBN 0-8109-2974-0) New York's left coast rival gets similar treatment in Hirschfeld's Hollywood. David Leopold, Hirschfeld's archivist, assembles 115 caricatures of celebrities, movie posters, press-book pages and more to accompany an exhibit at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. The book encompasses Hollywood phenoms from Capra's You Can't Take It with You from 1938, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland in 1945's Girl Crazy, The Manchurian Candidate and Saving Private Ryan. ($15.95 paper 96p ISBN -9052-0) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
The delightfully clever illustrations in these companion books span 80 years of productivity by the still-active 98-year-old artist Hirschfeld. The dual publications coincide with dual exhibitions: one at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood and one at the Museum of the City of New York. Most people identify Hirschfeld with his lively black-and-white line caricatures of famous people and events in the entertainment industry, as reproduced in magazines and newspapers like the New York Times. Both books include examples of these caricatures but also discuss and display Hirschfeld's many other contributions to 20th-century American popular culture, and both also include photographs and self-portraits of the artist himself. A New York City resident for most of his life, Hirschfeld also became associated with Hollywood after 1920, when he started doing publicity art for movie studios then based in New York, such as Selznick, Warner, and MGM. In Hirschfeld's Hollywood, Hirschfeld's own archivist, David Leopold, showcases over 100 examples of his colorful poster and advertising work for movies through the decades. For Hirschfeld's New York, exhibit curator Bell also has selected over 100 examples, portraying the Broadway theater and other aspects of New York's night life and daily life. Both books contain works that are not well known as well as old favorites. As represented here, the sheer chronological span of one perceptive artist's interpretive work should appeal to a wide audience. While either book is highly recommended on its own, a joint purchase of these complementary books is suggested for both academic and public libraries.
